Color quality plays an important role in imaging and displaying. For the Low-quality image, we propose a new method in this paper that is based on gamma mapping to improve color contrast and restore color expression of real world scene. The main idea of the proposed approach is that according to human vision characteristics uses logarithm transformation to extend luminance response of image so; meanwhile, adopts the gamma mapping to enhance the contrast of highlight and dark regions. To approve the proposed method, two well-known algorithms are selected and their contrast results are also presented. The results show that the proposed approach performs better than other traditional methods for color restoration which is of good robustness.
